Find out who consecrated who as bishop:  http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/

My current bishop was consecrated by JPII when he was a cardinal (?) in 1958.  Its neat to notice how my bishop's line went from Italian to Polish all of a sudden.

Drummerboy,

  Yes, the site is good at tracking lineages.  By the way, JPII was consecrated a bishop in 1958.  Do you mean that your bishop was consecrated by him later?  If he was consecrated in 58 and is still an ordinary, he is probably the oldest known active Latin rite bishop around.

Crusader,

  Actually, I have seen the info on Bishop Francis Hong  Yong-ho before.  I was speaking as someone who was absolutely known to be alive and serving their faithful.  It sure would be interesting if he was found to be aliive and living the Catholic faith.

Omigosh.  Bishop Howard Hubbard's lineage descends from Pope Saint Pius X?  Good grief!

Episcopal Lineage / Apostolic Succession:

Bishop Howard James Hubbard (1977)
Terence James Cardinal Cooke † (1965)
Francis Joseph Cardinal Spellman † (1932)
Pope Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli † (1917)
Pope Giacomo della Chiesa † (1907)
Pope St. Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto † (1884)

I've been searching that site off and on for years looking for an episcopal lineage that goes back further than Rebiba and extends to the present.  Hard going.

Look up bishops in Vietnam. There is non-Rebiba lineage there.

Good luck in tracking it down to the Apostles!

What you said makes sense.  My Bishop is on his late 50's.
